Back To School, Back To Church

August 15, 2014 — 2 Comments

There is such an excitement in the air when it is time for the kids to go back to school:  new clothes, new shoes, new backpacks and lunch boxes.  It is fun to go to the store and buy fresh erasers, pencils, and folders.  It is a new start to a year of learning and growing.

Back To School, Back To Church

We are feeling this excitement at the Faulls house.  Just a few days ago we dropped off our 1st Grader and our 10th Grader at their schools.  Tomorrow I will help my daughter, who is a Junior in college this year, get moved back onto campus.  Next week I send my son to the university for his Freshman year.

But this is not only a thrilling time as people get back to school, it is also a wonderful time to get back into a more regular schedule at church.

In our congregation we are gearing up for a Fall rich with opportunities to grow spiritually, strengthen the family, and make a difference in the world.  Other churches all over our community are doing the same.

That makes me think, are you ready for a new year going to and growing with your local church family?  After a summer of vacations and slower routines, are you committed to get into a devoted routine at church?

I hope you are?  Why?

Because it makes a difference.

How so?

Consider these benefits…

  1. The family gets to do something spiritual together.
  2. You are a part of something bigger than yourself.
  3. Your kids get to grow in their faith through your example and the example of others.
  4. You feel the strength of doing life, spiritual life, with a larger group of people.
  5. You get to partner with others to make a difference in the world.

So let’s not just get back to school.

Let’s, with excitement, get back to church!

  1. I love the caring and love for one another, and the bonding of striving to live for Christ together as a church family. Thanks Greg for your blogs/devotions!
